These materials will be chosen from amongst the >most informative and significant mainland Chinese media reports, >academic publications, activist writings, internet discussions and so >on. > >Currently, most English material on Chinese labor is written by >former Chinese labor activists now residing outside China, the foreign >media,or foreign scholars, NGOs, trade unions and the like, each from > their >own specific perspectives. It is our hope that this bi-monthly >mail-out will give English language readers access to some >perspectives from inside China. We hope these few monthly articles >can help build a more nuanced understanding of Chinese labor issues >and how they are being conceptualised, understood and discussed in >Chinese public forums. There is a wealth of information, analyses and >research that is not currently available to non-Chinese readers. >These translations can at least make a small portion of that accessible >to the outside world. > >Each mail-out will be accompanied by an introduction, explaining the >background and significance of the selected articles. > >This project was initiated by Anita Chan, an academic researcher and a >labor rights advocate at the Australian National University (see >Anita's web site at >http://rspas.anu.edu.au/people/personal/chana_ccc.php). The project >will be run by a small group of volunteer researchers, labor advocates >and translators. It is our aim to better inform English-speaking >readers about the problems and the possibilities facing workers in >China, and to facilitate constructive discussion and co-operation >around these issues. > >If you would like to sign-up to receive this bi-monthly email, please >send an email with the word SUBSCRIBE in the title to this address, >chinalabornews@...
